Sibley East’s School District will not receive any payment from the City of Arlington this year for swimming pool operations.
Superintendent Stephen Jones said that he recently learned that Arlington would not be making its $20,000 payment for pool operations as it had done in the recent past.
Jones said that he had met with the City this winter to discuss a reduced payment from the City to the school district in fiscal year 2010, based on local government aid cuts. He said he was surprised, however, to learn that there wouldn’t be any payment from Arlington.
Jones said a meeting will be held with Arlington City officials to explore operations for fiscal year 2011.
